Just when you thought it was safe to resurface....Ozysnarkius

Other than "Most Aweful One" this may be my favorite salutation ever.

Funky letter! Hopefully, it's not a representation of most teen queries out there (if he is a teen). It makes me think of my fifteen year old son's habit of doing whatever the hell he wants with school assignments because of course, he's right and everyone else is dead wrong.

Not to be a nitpicker, but the host spelled Ultimate wrong in his headline. Maybe it's a British thing...

Oh LOL!!!

"but i renamed it as zip to confuse anyone who wants to steal it and i always got the latest version up at myspace"

Uh-uh, yeah, uh-uh... LMAO!!!

That was so funny.

That was GREAT! Thank you for sharing it Miss Snark!

Oh giggle.

Funny, but I hate sonofabitch sites that lock-on.

Oh my gosh. Aren't you glad you didn't actually receive that for the crapometer? On second thought, if Bridges of Madison County could be a best seller, so could that. It's more creative, but it would be tiresome to read an entire novel written like that.

That wasn't really a teen. He slipped up and used proper grammar in a couple of spots.

You know, I really want to read that book. It certainly sounds different. Probably would make a great YA.

I hate to say it, but the teen time travel school assignment thing was a movie with Keanu Reeves.

you know, like whatever dude, um
Bell and Ted's Excellent Adventure
gag me with a spoon, it's shure perty coincedental!

;)

That was a bad query, but like all truly bad queries, it had something--in this case the germ of an idea that might be fun to read.

And EE is dead-on. Where's the movie hype?!

Talia Mana said...

I agree Judy. The concept of the book sounds great. Perfect for film or the YA market.

The writing was hilarious. Loved it. Thanks for sharing

I'm sure that you're secretly e-mailing him right now with an offer of representation.

He raises a very good question: How does one remove a whale bone corset?

That was quite interesting. Good for entertainment value in an "Ouch, ooh, crap no, don't do that...you did NOT just say that...ouch...the pain, make it stop" kind of way.

It scares me that someone could even hypothetically be that stupid, but I'm sure it happens quite a lot.

That, and it's an insult to serious fifteen-year-old writers. And I haven't hit fifteen yet.

Thanks for posting that, Mlle Snarque. I am now thoroughly terrified of being lazy on my query letters. I'm sure it'll help me a lot.
